Is grinding the bottom front 4 teeth down a good option?

Recontouring front teeth #DrSoftTouch
Recontouring a chipped tooth is sometimes a good option if the chip is small. This is a inexpensive fix, yet permanent fix. However, recontouring can cause bite issues and possible increased sensitivity to hot and cold. I would recommend seeing your dentist for an evaluation to determine your options. If recontouring is not an option, consider veneers rather than composite bonding. While composite bonding can be used to improve the appearance of teeth, it chips and stains easily. Good luck and I hope this helps. Follow me if you have more questions.
